2011-09-01/30 Monthly LOVIEE

September is here, school’s back in session, and all that jazz. I realize it’s a bit sparse right now but I do plan to add more events by the beginning of the week. I am way behind on posts for this blog (as usual) and I also have new sites I’m launching. I do remain committed to Quinn’s Big City living up to the tagline “The best of Houston’s arts, events, and happenings!” To me, it’s not just a tagline, it’s what this blog is about, and there’s little reason for it to exist if it’s not about showcasing the best of what the city has to offer.
